Chile’s population is nearly 17 million.
Chile claims to have Latin America’s fastest growing economy, despite the financial crisis of 2008.
Catholic influence is still strong in Chile, and 70 percent of people identify with the faith. Yet only 13 percent of Catholics regularly attend mass, and the society is moving further from traditions of the past. One out of seven women are mothers by the age of 14. During the political unrest under Pinochet, the churches in Chile earned a stigma by ignoring the people in their time of need. While many, especially the wealthy, are identifying with Pentecostals, the movement is full of disunity.
Please watch this video and pray for unity and discipleship for this nation. Pray that GNPI’s NOMaD team (grassroots media production team) can show Chileans how to live out their faith in practical ways.
